Elizabethan Gardens Family Portraits Manteo,NC Photographers

We had the pleasure of working with the Griffiths family. Jessica and her wonderful husband were married by Jay Bowman at the Elizabethan Gardens in Manteo, NC on Roanoke Island. They decided to come back to the Elizabethan Gardens for a 10 year wedding anniversary photo shoot with the new additions to their family. These beautiful girls were so sweet and wonderful to work with. Their outfits were just so adorable. The Elizabethan Gardens are a wonderful place for your family photos if you have already done beach photos and would like to do something different or if you are looking for a beautiful garden look. There are so many wonderful spots in the gardens. Before you make your reservation you need to know that the Elizabethan Gardens charges a fee and you must make a reservation with the Elizabethan Gardens for the session before you can book with us. Also, know that the photographer you use has to be on the Gardens approved vendor list.

 

 

Family Photography Rodanthe The Van Noort Family

We had a perfect day in August for portraits on the beach in Rodanthe, NC. The Van Noorts traveled here all the way from South Dakota. They were such a fun family to work with as you will see in the photos. They used a variety of blues, whites and khakis for their photo shoot. A little bit of color can make your photos really stand out.

 

Rodanthe Sunrise Family Portraits

The first week of June was a very wet week. We had to reschedule some of our clients. The McCann family was rescheduled to a morning session. We photographed the McCann family in Rodanthe at sunrise. It was such a gorgeous morning. The sky was gorgeous and this family was so nice and wonderful to work with. Here is their gorgeous family portrait session.

Zak Carova Beach Family Portraits

I met up with Megan at the Twiddy office in Corolla. We had family portraits scheduled for an evening session with her family in the Carova area of Corolla,NC. It is always such a nice drive up the beach. The portrait session took place in September so the beach was pretty clear and the horses were out roaming that day. They didn’t visit us during our session but at least we got to admire them on the way to the house.
Including the boyfriends they had 23 people in their group. It was quite a windy day but we were able to work around it.

Duck Family Beach Portraits Meling Family

We were so fortunate to work with the Meling family again this year. It has been so wonderful to see everyone over the years. They traveled from Raleigh,NC for their vacation in Duck this year.
This part of Duck doesn’t have very good sand dunes so most of the pictures were taken in front of the water or walking down the beach. Often, when we start a portrait session, we have everyone pose in the dunes with the sea oats in the background. When the sun goes down and gets softer, we do portraits in front of the water. This helps keep everyone from squinting. Thankfully, it was an overcast day which was wonderful for the pictures.
I love that the Meling family avoided the traditional colors and picked their favorite team colors for their portrait session.  We had a lot of fun with this family. I can’t wait until next time!
